Neverland's Shadow

As most on this blog already know, I wrote a short story for the Unfettered anthology for Shawn Speakman, called "The Jester." Shawn is putting together another anthology called Neverland's Shadow and I'm penning another story for that it.  What really drew me to this anthology is that the whole body of work focuses on the antagonist.  Rarely do we get a glimpse inside the heads of these nefarious types, but this anthology will use this as its binding theme.

So who all will be contributing? A pretty awesome line-up.  Including:

  • Ann Aguirre
  • Piers Anthony
  • R. Scott Bakker      
  • Jim Butcher
  • Glen Cook
  • Tang Fe
  • Mark Lawrence
  • Tanith Lee
  • Ken Liu

  • Scott Lynch
  • John Marco
  • Tim Marquitz
  • Peter Orullian
  • Kat Richardson
  • Anthony Ryan
  • Shawn Speakman
  • Michael J. Sullivan
  • Adrian Tchaikovsky
Other people associated with the project include Terry Brooks, who will be writing the introduction. Todd Lockwood will be developing the cover and editing will be handled by Shawn Speakman and Roger Bellini. One of the things that Grim Oak Press does so well is creates really beautiful leather bound collector volumes including signed editions. Last time around the signed/numbered copies sold out almost instantly, and I suspect this volume will be popular as well. So if you want to get your hands on one of these, circle September 3, 2014 on your calendar as that's when Grim Oak Press will start taking pre-orders. And if you want to learn more about the anthology as a whole, hop on over to Grim Oak Press.
